4 Things To Know About The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Value Edition

2017 Hyundai Elantra Value Edition

This month, Hyundai introduced a value edition for its Elantra line-up. This will allow people on a budget to get the Hyundai Elantra with a slew of important features, but without the skyrocketing price of the other trim levels.

Mike Evanoff, the product planning manager in Hyundai, said the South Korean company wants to give their customers a variety of options. The Value Edition will bridge the gap between valuable amenities and the price tag.

1. Price

First, the price. This new trim level is just $20.250. That’s a total of $1,215 in savings. Considering that the Value Edition added features to ensure comfort, convenience, and safety, the $20,000 price tag is not bad at all.

2. Additional Features

Aside from those that come standard to all trim levels, the Value Edition boasts of these features: blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert and lane change assist, leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather shift knob, LED daytime running lamps, auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink and compass, hands-free Smart Trunk release, proximity key with electronic push button start, and sunroof—power glass tilt and slide, safety one-touch.

It also has dual automatic temperature control with clean air ionizer and auto defogger, heated front seats, Bluetooth hands-free phone system, seven-inch Display Audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and power driver’s seat with lumbar adjust.

3. Standard Features

All Elantra trim levels now come with Bluetooth and cruise control while HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light is now standard on the Limited trim. On the SE trim level, the additional standard features are steering-wheel phone and audio controls.

The Elantra is made up of 53-percent high-strength steel and 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle engine. This gives every trim level a solid foundation, plus the comfort, convenience, and safety features standard to every model. Drivers will be glad to know that Hyundai also offers complimentary services for the Elantra, including Automatic Collision Notification, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Vehicle Diagnostic Alert, Monthly Vehicle Health Report, and In-Vehicle Service Scheduling.

3 Reasons To Watch Out For The 2018 Kia GT

kia-gt

The production version of the 2018 Kia GT came back with an exciting new teaser that shows us more of what we can expect once it officially debuts next year.

Let’s jump to these three things all auto enthusiasts much watch out for:

1. It’s Going To Be A Liftback

Instead of the traditional body style, the 2018 Kia GT will have a liftback, according to the second teaser released. This means there’s going to be better cargo space at the back. It’s also a rear-wheel drive, so we can expect a slew of more adjustments and modifications in that aspect.

2. It’s The Fastest Kia Ever

This Kia will be able to go from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.1 seconds, making it the fastest vehicle the South Korean brand has ever made. The teaser showed the car being tested on the track beside the Namyang Research and Development Center in South Korea.

During a testing in Germany at Nurburgring, the model was able to reach 244 kph, although its official site said that it has a maximum speed of more than 280 kph. The first teaser, in fact, showed the speedometer needle go over the 280 kph line.

3. It’s Packing Four-Cylinder Gas And Diesel Engine

The production version GT will be available in a wide range of four-cylinder options that include gasoline and diesel options. The flagship will feature Kia’s biturbo 3.3-liter V-6 engine. This is a new unit fitted also in Hyundai’s Genesis-branded premium models. There, it can produce 365 horsepower max and 376 pound-feet of torque.

Entry versions of the 2018 Kia GT can arrive with a new turbocharged 2.0-liter that was the same one you can find under the hood of the 2017 Hyundai i30 N. This can produce 250 horsepower. The European market can receive a turbodiesel engine.

There are no pricing details released by the South Korean company, but expect the 2018 Kia GT to arrive under a different name at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this January 8.
